The Prophecy (1995)
Gabriel: I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

Catherine: Go to hell!
Gabriel: Heaven, darling. Heaven. At least get the zip code right.
Catherine: It's all the same to you, isn't it?
Gabriel: No. In heaven, we believe in love.
Catherine: What do you love, Gabriel?
Gabriel: Cracking your skull.

Gabriel: Jerry, come here. If you were a soul, where would you hide?
Jerry: The hell away from you.

Gabriel: This war is mine!
Lucifer: Your war is arrogance. That makes it evil. That's mine.
Gabriel: Lucifer. Sitting in your basement. Sulking over your break up with the boss. You're nothing.
Lucifer: Time to come home, Gabriel.

Gabriel: Study your math, kids. Key to the Universe.

Catherine: Who are you?
Gabriel: That's a long story.

Thomas Daggett: If you wanted to prove your side was right, Gabriel, so badly, why didn't you just ask Him? Why didn't you ask God?
Gabriel: Because He doesn't talk to me any more.

Gabriel: It's not here.
Jerry: Bad news for the war effort.
Gabriel: Shut up!

Gabriel: Do you know how you got that dent, in your top lip? Way back, before you were born, I told you a secret, then I put my finger there and I said "Shhhhh!"

Simon: I'm so tired of this war.
Gabriel: Reject the lie Simon. Join us! Help us make it like it was before the monkeys. You remember? We cast out Lucifer's army, you and I. We threw their rebel thrones from the wall.
Simon: They wanted to be gods.
Gabriel: I don't wanna be a god Simon. I just wanna make it like it was, before the lie. When he loved us best.

[Thomas has just killed Jerry]
Gabriel: Pest! You have any idea how hard it is to get one of those?

Gabriel: Eternity here in that sagging skin suit, or one more day with me?
Rachael: Why?
Gabriel: Can't drive. But I can wait. Until stars burn out if you don't make up your mind.

Gabriel: It's a big universe Jerry and some things in it are talking monkey work. Monkeys, like you.


Gabriel (2007)
Gabriel: This is a place, where even angels fear to tread.

Gabriel: I love you Michael, but I hate what you've become.

Gabriel: Accept the dawn, and bleed with me, brother.

Sammael: Why Gabriel? I give you everything and you still deny me.
Gabriel: Free will.

Gabriel: [reading letter from Michael] Gabriel, if you are reading this, then I have failed. We are far from grace, further than I could ever imagine. You will feel things that will cloud your judgement. This enemy within is strong and unpredictable. Control these emotions or the fight cannot be won. The others have failed, learn from them but do not follow. You are the last. Michael.

Sammael: Just say my name. I love you like a brother, I taught you everything you know. I can hear it in your thoughts, say it. Say it!
Gabriel: Michael.

Gabriel: I missed you.
Jade: You missed Amietiel not me.

Jade: You dont get do you Gabe. Everything here works against us. We fall pray to the things we never knew existed. Fear, hate, all of these things, that make all of them stronger.
Jade: The city itslf is there best defence.
[looks at him]
Jade: What are you thinking about?
Gabriel: I think I'm hungry.

Gabriel: You threw me far from grace, and now I fall onto it.

Gabriel: Falling is the last thing an angel feels.

Gabriel: Do you know who served us?
Jade: [looks at him] Does he seem familiar?
[Gabriel shakes his head]
Jade: Well he's been here a long time.
[looks at Gabriel, thinks for a moment]
Jade: That's Ithuriel, another who surrender to the fear. And after he heard of my fate, he choose exile over confrontation.
Gabriel: [shaking his head] I can't...
Jade: [cuts Gabriel off, lowers her voice] Don't be so harsh to judge others Gabriel. You haven't been here long enough to earn that right.
Gabriel: I don't intend to either.

Gabriel: I thought you were dead... I was right.
[shoots Sammael]


The Prophecy II (1998) (V)
[Izzy is reaching for fruit from a tree in Eden]
Gabriel: Don't eat that! Trust me.

Rafayel: How many more worlds have to burn before you're satisfied, Gabriel?
Gabriel: Just the one. This one.
[rips Rafayel's heart out causing him to scream from pain]
Gabriel: I'm not greedy.

Gabriel: There's a small step from prophet to martyr. Can you take it?

Gabriel: Monkey wannabe.

[Watching the cop talk on the handheld radio]
Gabriel: May I ask, you fellas use that to what, talk to each other? Yeah?
Cop: What, are you high? It's a radio. Yeah.
Gabriel: It's a miracle. Shh.
[puts him to sleep, takes the gun and radio]
Gabriel: Okay. Pop quiz.
[sets the gun next to Izzy]
Gabriel: How do you make that work?
[lays the radio down, too]
Gabriel: How do you use that? Hmm?
[Izzy picks up the gun and shoots herself]
Gabriel: Are we having a communication problem? What?

Gabriel: Let's understand each other. I sang the first hymn when the stars were born. Not that long ago, I announced to a young woman, Mary, who it was she was expecting. On the other hand, I've turned rivers into blood, kings into cripples, cities to salt - so I don't think that I have to explain myself to you.

Valerie Rosales: [referring to God] It's not that he stopped loving you. It's because you don't listen.
Gabriel: What does he say ?
Valerie Rosales: [whispers into Gabriel's ear] Jump.

Izzy: Is that her?
Gabriel: Bingo.

Gabriel: [last line of the movie] Phone's gonna ring... It's gonna be you-know-who. Everything's gonna be made right. Phone's gonna ring.

Gabriel: He's gone. He's dead. He's taking a dirt nap. Look, I need your help. I'm short staffed at the moment. Don't start. Don't start. I hate that, please. He's the cold eye. He's spilled milk. Come on, come on kiddo. Come on kiddo, we got work to do.


Legion (2010)
Michael: I knew He'd send you, Gabriel... You were always so eager to please Him.
Gabriel: Unlike you... The rebellious son.

Gabriel: This can't be. You've disobeyed Him.
Michael: You gave Him what he asked for. I gave Him what He needed.

Gabriel: [Michael has just spared Gabriel] I would not have shown you such mercy.
Michael: I know. That's why you failed Him.

Michael: I knew he'd send you Gabriel, you were always so eager to please him.
Gabriel: Unlike you.

Gabriel: This is not your test, Michael. How dare you presume to know His heart?
Michael: [putting a hand to his chest] Because He made this one. And it tells me He shouldn't lose faith now.

Gabriel: They have brought this judgment on themselves.
Michael: They are just lost. It is our duty to guide them.


The Prophecy 3: The Ascent (2000) (V)
Gabriel: I'd die every night, if I had the money.

Zophael Jones: Killing you would be so easy.
Gabriel: Yeah? Fried food can kill me, a mugger can kill me. You're not so special down here, Jones!

Gabriel: You been with a woman, Zophael? It's like dying... you moan, cry out. You get to a spot that has you begging for release. Once, I was an Angel of Death... now, I die every day... when I have the cash.

Gabriel: In the end, there's still the word. Everywhere. In heaven and its angels, the Earth and stars; even in the darkest part of the human soul. It was there the word burned brightest, and for a moment... I was blinded.

Gabriel: What's it like? To wake up... as dead meat... with the buzzards circling?
Danyael: Do I know you?
Gabriel: I know -you.- From before you were born. Both times.


The Green Pastures (1936)
Gabriel: Gangway for the lord god, Jehovah!
